and they know this how? It looks like Greco-Roman graffiti to me. Maybe a self portrait.

500 years after he lived! Is it a good likeness?

All a ploy to get Michael Cera a gig playing Jesus.

So? There is graffitti all over churches from that era.

Unless it was labeled they can't say. It could of been even the priest who served there drawn by a follower.

The apse mosaic of the Transfiguration scene from St. Catherine monastery in Sinai

journal.pone.0185149.g006
 
VIL image of the southern apse and the painted area.

The VIL imaging of the upper part of the apse reveals very substantial details that are invisible to the naked eye and have never been detected before. The numbers indicate the rays of light. The stone blocks contour was added in order to give a better orientation where the rays and figures are located in the apse .

Superimposed image of the southern apse.

This image shows a photograph of the entire painting combined with the VIL image with emphasized digital reconstruction of the outlines of the figures and the motifs. This combined image shows for the first time the invisible and visible details together and reveals the original composition of the scene
